in washington. >> so the jury is still out. and i'm saying this, this is a point i want to raise with you, adam lashinsky, the knee jerk response, fema is doing a great job, how do you know? how do you know? i just find it offensive when officials who are supposed to be providing help so sure early on that they are. and that is, as these others were pointing out, you could go do aerial shots over staten island at some points looks like mogadishu. and the fact of the matter is, quite rightly we're all over administration officials when it looked like the response to katrina was delayed. and i don't believe we applied the same litmus test this time around, but it is what it is. they have a test the responsiveness of agencies and not reward them with more money, before we know how successful. at this point i would say not suck'sful at all. >> hold on, i almost completely agree with you, neil. where i will give the elected officials the benefit of the doubt, they want to try to be hopeful, right? they want to try to give people something good about, thank you for the good stuff you are doing. >> yo
. is he live with me from washington. good morning, david. >> good morning. >> gretchen: this early in the morning i'm glad you can calculate all these numbers in your head. the last unemployment rate we are going to see before the election inches up. what's the real number? >> no president has been reelected with an unemployment rate higher than 7.4 since franklin delano roosevelt. it's a tough hill to climb. the fundamentals of this number are even worse simply because some people have left the labor market that if barack obama had the same amount of people looking for work as when george bush was president. left presidency, we would have a 10.6 unemployment rate. it's far worse than it looks. >> gretchen: what about this u 6 unemployment rate being 14.6% for october. what's u 6? >> that is everyone who is looking for work part timers, all the people in the workforce rather than just eliminating a lot of people who simply stopped looking. the u-6 some people think it's the real unemployment rate. i mean, i don't think there is any perfect number to read this and we have always use
the rich play out in washington? will they have some by tart san agreement? we'll hear from both sides ahead. >> and for the first time since sandy knocked out its power, lady liberty shining brightly. guess what, thousands of americans who were hit hard by sandy still sitting cold and powerless 12 days later. we will hear from some of those people as "fox & friends" for this saturday starts right now. >> oy. >> oy it is early. >> thanks for joining us so early and thanks to mike jarrett for coming in and clayton morris. >> i have a feeling i know why you invited me in because i'm 237 years old. oddly, it's also the marine scorp 237 years old today. >> you look good for 237. >> look good for that old. >> happy birthday. >> to the marines. it's good to be back. it's been three weeks since i have been on this curvey couch. >> we have missed. >> you i have missed you and this wonderful couch and it's a busy news saturday. >> my goodness, what a bombshell that dropped yesterday afternoon, general petraeus, you know, widely respected as such a stellar military career man that he was immedia
at the washington post national poll. they took a look across the country and found this race tied. 48% each. that does left 4% undecided. i will get to that in just a minute. let's take a look at the real clear politics national average. they take the polls and combine them and take the average. 1/10 percent lead for president obam a. again, you have 4%, or 5% undecided. the question i keep asking, david, is if after four years of an obama administration, people are undecided, might they not be inclined to try the guy who hasn't had the office yet? >> they might. we have seen in past electrics, where undecided voters at this late date, by and large go with the challenger. but the question, too, given how decide divided the country is, are they going to show up? if they don't, who does that hurt? who does that help? it also is interesting because you have this race, by and large, focused on about 10 battleground states, very intensely treally hasn't been a national campaign, given that everybody's been traveling to the same, you know, 8 to 10 states. i think that, you know, could have an eff
not. flatout. >> there is one great predictor, 18 of the 19 times since 1936 the washington redskins last home game dictated the winner of the election a couple days later. the incumbent is tied to whether or not the redskins win or lose and the incumbent, president obama's body is tied to a loss. >> but the defecating on the lawn sign this is the party of occupy wall street. so, are we really surprised? >> they are into fertilizer. >> four years ago the "new york daily news," the 5th largest in the country, consider add blue-collar paper, endorsed president obama, i am a columnist for the paper and they said endorsed mitt romney saying that the hopes of those days and everything the president promised was unfulfilled. i know he will not win new york. but how much dot endorsements matter? >> at least from a tone perspective on the campaign you can see that mitt romney has fought his way through a tough primary and has worked so hard he has convinced many papers, including in wisconsin, that paper flipped from obama support in 2008 to romney in 2012. you do not do that without effort
